Your wedding, your Wedding Photographer
Your wedding is unique. No two weddings will ever be the same and neither should they be! Your wedding is uniquely about celebrating the two of you, all that you are and this exciting new life that you are starting out on together. You know what you want from your day and my aim is simply to give you what you want from me, so my style is flexible and totally adaptable to your needs.
Whether you want me to be structured, organised and formal, arranging people and particular shots that you've asked me to capture, or to simply blend into the party, capturing moments as they occur as discreetly as a guy with a camera ever can be, I'm with you to deliver.
Meet for a no-obligation chat
A chat is so helpful to us all; you can tell me what plans and aspirations you have and how you want your amazing day to go, plus of course what you want from your wedding photographer. I will seek to understand and help you with the process and we can decide together whether I am the right wedding photographer for your needs.
Let's capture some informal, relaxed images of the two of you. Typically this can be in one of your favourite places, perhaps where you got engaged or went on your first date together.
My pre-ceremony preparations
In the same way that no two weddings are ever the same, neither are two officiants, many of whom have had run-ins with over-eager wedding photographers in the past. Contrary to popular photographic opinion, the photography is a witness of the wedding, not the driving force behind it! I usually station myself unobtrusively at some distance away from you, so that I can capture the details that you've asked me to without interrupting the service, particularly during the legal sections.
Visit venuesIf possible, I like to visit each venue ahead of your wedding day. This allows me to get some ideas of where you'd like your day to unfold and the best places for me to capture the day. I often find during these visits that in talking to people there I have been given access to areas normally off-limits, in order to gain an unusual perspective on proceedings.
Keep in touch
I'll be in touch with you throughout the preparations in order to answer any questions you may have, ensure that everything is on track, that I am aware of any changes that you've made to your day and to ensure that we have the final timetable for your day.
Capturing the many little details that you've been putting together for weeks; your dress, shoes, bouquet, make-up. Getting ready with your closest supporters and family, your chosen mode of transport to the ceremony...
Groom & groomsmen
Let's not forget the groom in this fairytale day! As they eagerly await the bride's arrival at the wedding venue, I'll capture their range of emotions and have a little fun...
My aim is to capture the elements of your unique ceremony in as quiet and unobtrusive manner as I can. Aiming to work within the parameters set by your officiant
Want formal group photos without it taking hours out of your day? I'll arrange and capture them with minimal fuss, allowing you to simply get on with enjoying your fantastic day with your guests - exactly as it should be.

Your wedding, your way! Let me know what you'd like and we'll go from there.
Me! It may sound silly, but I've heard stories where a photographer has sub-contracted weddings out. That doesn't happen here. It's me you're asking to photograph your day and I take that as a tremendous compliment. I don't sub-contract; you book me, you get me. Simple.
Photography coverage for as long as you need me
Every image will be edited. This is where the time adds up! Ever heard (or asked) the question "Why is wedding photography so expensive?" It's not when you consider the sheer number of hours that we will spend editing your images. The more images, the more time.

You can personally preview the images before allowing your guests to see them if you wish
Images can be marked as "favourites", prints can be ordered, they can even be downloaded (subject to package selected), posted to social media or emailed
Your images on a USB fob with full personal license, so you can share and print them as much as you want.
A small mileage charge may be appropriate if your wedding is distant from Coventry
I appreciate a warm meal, or even a round of sandwiches
